Flexible and Reliable

Balluff products are extremely versatile and have unparalleled reliability. If you need process feedback, a quick part changeover, or automatic size change, we can help you accomplish this to prevent unplanned downtime. We also have solutions for the more sensitive applications, such as product protection, traceability, and HMI access control. Balluff’s technology complies with strict industry regulations and standards. Our products are available worldwide and are internationally approved.

IO-Link reduces downtime and is cost effective

When new lines are installed or existing lines need to be upgraded, Balluff products with IO-Link technology make this a quick and cost-effective process. We offer IO-Link master network blocks to be utilized with any existing network architecture. By using only basic proximity sensor cables, you can benefit from error free re-calibration, download parameters, and get up to 128 points of I/O with one IP address!

When filling pharmaceutical blister packaging, one sensor is sufficient for optimum quality

The Balluff BVS Vision Sensor will ensure your blister packs are filled correctly every time.

When part-presence, position, placement, and process time is critical, the BVS will accurately confirm or reject to keep your quality standards high.

Our vision sensor will adapt to your application. When you have multiple parts to inspect, we can reliably detect all necessary components. The user-friendly software enables the required tools for different inspection and poka-yoke requirements.

Bonus Advantage: Changeovers are possible at all times; even during the process itself. Frequent format changes and different packaging units can be reliably inspected with the BVS vision sensor.
